Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers, a team of top providers of medication assisted treatment for individuals ages 18 and older, understand the importance of providing services that can help individuals recover from an addiction to heroin or other opioids. To ensure this success, we offer the following proven-effective medications that can be included into a patient’s customized treatment plan:
Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic medication that stops withdrawal symptoms and cravings without causing an individual to become high like they would through the abuse of other opioids like heroin or painkillers. Classified as an opioid agonist, methadone can assist in safely weaning an individual off of opioids.
Subutex: Subutex contains buprenorphine as its primary ingredient, meaning that it is effective in curbing cravings and preventing withdrawal symptoms by blocking the effects of opioids on an individual’s brain. Subutex is considered a partial opioid agonist-antagonist.
Suboxone: Suboxone contains naloxone and buprenorphine and is capable of controlling withdrawal symptoms and averting cravings. However, if this medication is abused on its own or with other medications, withdrawal symptoms can develop.
The medication and dosage recommended for a patient will be determined based on his or her unique needs. The medications we provide can always be adjusted if need be.
In addition, Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers supply a number of services that were created to support individuals who are obtaining medication assisted treatment. Our team of certified medical professionals and addiction experts include nurses, doctors, and counselors, all of whom are devoted to providing quality care to each patient who comes to our center for treatment.
